I contributed a presentation to the International Conference: Free/SlowUniversity of Warsaw in October 2011, and two month later a beautiful 430 page publication is out. Amazing!
An English version of the written-up presentation, without footnotes, is here
A JOY FOREVER: THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF SOCIAL CREATIVITY
The book covers more than the narrowly understood art world, here art is understood as a social laboratory, where innovatory ways of organising labor and its modes of appropriation are tested, as well as different types of production, speculation, generation and accumulation of value.
The publication is inspired by the international conference conference Labour of the Multitudes: Political Economy of Social Creativity which took place in Warsaw, Poland, in October 2011.
Currently only available in Polish: English edition - comming soon!
